No worries. I log on Facebook and all I see are videos catered to me based on shit I got sucked into last time I reluctantly went on Facebook.

Remember when Facebook was good? Yeah, me either

It’s been a long time since I’ve actually watched Twitch and I actually thought it was a really cool idea to start with. Back then I got pulled in from following competitive StarCraft. By the time I got there SC2 was on the decline but LoL was taking off. I liked watching the big LoL competitions but spent most my time watching competitive StarCraft II. Shout out to Incontrol, RIP, his casts got me into it and if there was still quality content I could see myself following again.

Eventually though you would just start following the trending streams. After every big release there would be new streamers popping off and it was fun to watch. Slowly the bots got more and more obnoxious and you realized the trending shit was bought and paid for. Then, a site where LoL streams was the central draw, camgirls started showing up. They created the IRL channel and influencers took control.

In a world where competitive gaming was taken seriously by the viewers and game studios fully supported the competive community twitch might have turned out different. For now, I think about how to get that OG twitch feeling back.

Daft_ish,

Continue on as a wage slave hoping to get like a couple weeks vacation eventually.

Daft_ish,

Is this the same plan that made homelessness illegal?

Daft_ish,

Can you imagine going back in time and telling your dad while he’s playing on his commodore 64, “In the future sex and video games will go hand in hand.”

Daft_ish,

Not my dar, nooooooo.

Daft_ish,

BS, everyone always talks about the latest version of windows as if 98 isn’t the template all modern guis start with.

Me personally, tho, only run ME.

Daft_ish,

Someone woke up today and chose hate.

Daft_ish,

I don’t doubt their existence but the wheel chair doesn’t look like fantasy.

Daft_ish, (edited )

Can confirm, this is what I meant. The wheelchair would be more closer to maybe attack on titan or full metal alchemist. Full metal alchemist is basically fantasy but I think it’s closer to steam punk. Attack on titan is not traditional fantasy.

If we’re talking high fantasy the wheelchair would more than likely be an arcane device or some stump with wagon wheels.

Daft_ish,

Fantasy is a genre and has been defined pretty clearly. Sure anyone is free to do their own thing just as I am free to critique their said thing.

Daft_ish,

If we’re talking a “zoo” utopia I’d imagine it involve some sort of retribution.

Daft_ish, (edited )

O am not personally affiliated with any party but will be voting Democrat, as it seems, for the rest of my time here.

Daft_ish,

Agreed, buuutttt…

Daft_ish, (edited )

know how to talk convincingly/manipulatively, but don’t necessarily need to know anything about debating.

I don’t know how you can say this with a straight face. Im guessing you’ve heard or seen a debate competition?

Daft_ish,

Isn’t the term, “playing devil’s advocate”? Take out the ‘playing’ and all you have is a devils advocate.

Daft_ish,

Where am I going to text tho???

Daft_ish,

What is the world coming too?

Daft_ish,

Queue anti-communism propaganda

Daft_ish,

Juries can nullify any charge based on their own discretion.

Daft_ish,

Wasn’t the guy who killed his sons rapist in plain sight of everyone let off due to jury nullification?

Daft_ish, (edited )

Meh, if it’s truly unlawful the DA will drop the charges. Until then you are subject to whatever bullshit the cop subjects you to with virtual impunity. Slap you with disorderly conduct, arrested. Or say they arrested you because you were resisting arrest.

Daft_ish,

Soo like the threat of jury nullification?

Daft_ish,

Thanks, I’ll remind everyone incase they forgot.

Daft_ish,

Thought old people were somehow different when I was a kid. Am old now and know it’s no different from being a kid only people somehow think they have permission to be way more fucked up.

Daft_ish,

Hey we all get mixed up trying to figure out how to be the person we want to be. Especially if you don’t have a positive role model. Start teaching each other there is nothing more alpha than being a good person who is true to themsleves.

Daft_ish,

be me

Everyone in this thread, “what’s this, I am a bastion of morality and its extremely important I convince anons on the internet about this.”

But for real when I dream about stopping time I dream of a pocket universe where I am the only person present. That way I can speed (I know I know I’m evil) on highways, explore, and learn without weird frozen bodies getting in my way. I would mostly use it for naps and cheating on tests (I know super evil).

Daft_ish,

Does it have to be murder. Can’t you just move them to a secluded island away from all communication technology and if they are found just move them again? I promise it would be more fun.

Daft_ish,

The physics would have to be weird so I just go with it’s your super power you get to define the limits.

Daft_ish,

Actually it doesn’t matter how much he beat you when the other guy molested and raped woman.

Daft_ish,

Maybe he was right to beat you. I know I wouldn’t hold back against a nazi.

Daft_ish,

Sorry, I’m only aware of one presidential candidate who has admitted to molesting woman on tape and has credible accusations of rape against him as determined by a court of law.

Daft_ish,

Wtf are you even on about now? Go head explain.

Daft_ish,

Sounds like your own personal philosophy

Daft_ish,

By learning from the past. See, in your mind you’ve already established all technological advancement is beneficial.

Daft_ish,

Ever notice how some roads aren’t paved?

Daft_ish,

Is your point limiting technological advancement always results in hindering the opportunity for good?

If so, no, I haven’t. Unless you define good as anything that someone could find value in.

Maybe what you’re missing is an example.

Tim and Susie live right next to each other and have windows facing each other. Tim and Susie are 6. They talk everyday over a tin can and string. Susie had the idea from seeing it in a comic book and Tim went home and made the tin can string telephone. The best part of their day is meeting up at the window and yelling to each other as each talk into a tin can. One day Tim’s absentee father stops by for a visit and sees Tim and Susie preform their ritual. Tim’s dad runs to the store and gets them a pair of walky talkies.

“Much better” Tim’s dad exclaims while throwing Tim’s tin cans in the trash. Tim and Susie think the walky talkies are neat and they run around for a day hiding behind bushes and seeing if they can find each other. Without the tin cans though they don’t have a reason to meet at the window everyday so they quickly forget why they ever had the ritual in the first place. Eventually ones batteries dies and it doesn’t even matter because they have long forgot their fun game.

Tell me. How did the tin cans cripple the chance for good?

Daft_ish,

Just answer the question. Did Tim’s tin can stop the world from spinning? Did it have purpose? Was its replacement adequate?

Tim’s dad represents Tim’s dad. Not everything is an analogy. Of course we can extrapolate it but I’m trying in the most simplest terms possible to make you see my point.

Daft_ish,

… right, because that is what I was talking about in the first place. Societital effects of widespread use of algorithm-driven social media platforms. Pretty impossible w/ you.

Daft_ish, (edited )

To spell it out again, not everything has to be done on the internet. Many people go on thinking ‘out with the old in with the new’ without ever considering scope and practicality. If you suddenly became manager of an office building with a complete pneumatic tube system your first instinct might be to gut the pneumatic tubes and do everything over email. That’s an OK thought but should that really be your first instinct? Most people wouldn’t even understand how pneumatic tubes work in the first place. Wouldn’t it be more prudent to to understand what the tubes are there for. Why they’ve lasted 60+ years. If the building is already wired with ethernet and has internet connection what should it matter if you use both keeping the tubes in place to continue their purpose?

Daft_ish,

When you start talking about how restraint would be advantageous, without any concept of how to incentivize or force said restraint, you’re just becoming old-man-yells-at-cloud.jpg.

I would challenge that. Say tomorrow I invented the eat-o-matic 5000 a top of the line eating utensil. Built in wifi, self cleaning, tracks how much food your eat, easy to manufacture, biodegradable, comes with a native streaming service that allows you to stream your eating experience to friends and family, affordable, etc.

Do you think in everyone would throw away their forks and knifes immediately and start using the eat-o-matic 5000? How about in 10 years? 20 years? 30 years?

Maybe the eat-o-matic is that good. I tend to believe forks and knives wouldn’t go anywhere, though. I also know forks and knives are already not the only technology that exists and the fact that one utensil isn’t ubiquitous proves that incentives and force are not the only factors at play.

Daft_ish,

So, all this just to say I shouldn’t have an opinion?

Daft_ish, (edited )

Sounds like an opinion to me. Of course your opinion is more valid because you said it. Since you would never be a hypocrit incapable of self reflection. Certainly, at the very least, would be able to detect sarcasm. If by chance you came across it.

Let me know if you need me to explain it because I know how hard it is for you to comprehend simple ideas.

Daft_ish,

Two can play

Some opinions are hollow and useless, and serve only to make the commenter feel smugly clever for stating the obvious
